Cowan No. 1

UCLA is finishing up its scrimmage, and the biggest piece of information coming out of it is Patrick Cowan being the No. 1 quarterback. He was the only quarterback to take reps with the first team offense, while Ben Olson’s reps were reserved for the second team offense.
Also, in talking to a few of my sources as I watch the scrimmage, each is telling me Cowan is the choice and will be the No. 1 quarterback.
As expected, the offense looks slugglish, and is struggling to move the ball.
But one guy who is standing out is receiver Taylor Embree, the son of former UCLA assistant Jon. Taylor has made several nice catches, although he was also called for a hold to bring back a big run.

    cowan had two nice TD passes v the 1st team D. the 1st was to paulson…cowan evaded the rush, moved right, then threw back left to logan, who broke a tackle and got into the end zone.

    that capped a 9 play, 75 yd drive. 50 yds of passing (key play: 3rd and 1 pass to theriot off p/a), 25 yds of running.

    2nd TD pass: 3rd n goal from the 11, cowan threw a bullet to everett that was a perfect “in” route btwn the lb, the cb and the safety to that side.

    olson looked befuddled and was double clutching all day….sad.
